Extra Pizazz toYour Wedding Day

Brides will always find themselves swamped with details and details and more details.  Sometimes those personal touches for your guests become overlooked. I see PLENTY of weddings and it is those little touches I just love!  In the midst of peak season I have hand picked a few of my favorite ideas for your guests to enjoy.


Paper straws in your main wedding color is always a hit, and they are the most simple thing.
Find them here. Pictures via.


Paper bags can be bought at your local grocery store at $1.50 for about 200 bags.
The favor bags above were a DIY project I did. We did around 180 bags. Hole punched, strung ribbon through and stamped each bag by hand = 4 hours of man time with 5 bridesmaids. Plus, pretty packaging makes the guest feel even sweeter!

Craft seating cards. this display was done by Bouquets of Austin for a recent wedding here at Vintage Villas (sorry for my fuzzy iPhone picture).  This was done by taking the glass out of a picture frame, pouring sand with in the frame, and placing each hand stamped seating card in the sand with succulents surrounding. Easy DIY if I say so myself!


Custom cake toppers are all the rage right now. etsy.com is a good resource for these cuties.

Have Bake Sale Come to You!

One of my favorite parts of a wedding is the candy and desert bars. Anything from the classic cake table to the extraordinary sweets bar, I love it all!   The Vintage Villas sales team had the opportunity last week to meet Andrea Duty of Bake Sale and taste her sweet treats!  Bake Sale delivers daily & can create a customizable dessert buffet (yes buffet!) for your special event.  Jump on the bandwagon and have Bake Sale “bring your sweet visions to life”!

What a Drag, but Here is Amazing Eye-Candy!

My computer has been down for a while and it is quite odd to blog from another computer.  So for the time being here is something sweet from a local Austin videographer – The Wedding Theater – who I have been oogling over for the past few days!  This video gives me chills that multiply!
